10¼" x 22½"

Earlier this fall I had gotten scraps of that tree fabric in brown and green from my quilt guild, and was so delighted to be able to make use of them here!  An orchard combines the sense of order of planted trees with the individual way that each of the trees grow.  It makes me think of the fresh outdoor air and the anticipation of the harvest at the season's end.  And the wider than normal proportions of this piece (I don't choose the dimensions so much as the picture does!) makes me long to go outside in early spring and just spread my arms wide and take a deep, deep breath.

I welcome your comments.
